I have not managed to eat out anywhere yet and not feel glutened the next day.

Our local Italian restaurant does gluten free people in a special pan ( :) ) reserved for gluten free and I have salad (olive oil only) but it still gets me every time :( .

I think there is just too much gluten going on in most kitchens and of course, flour in the air, etc must tend to get everywhere. Realistically, a busy commercial kitchen is not likely to have sensitive cc issues under complete control!

 

As for laundry detergent - a couple of years ago I changed ours from a general one (various makes) to a environmentally friendly, no harsh chemicals, etc one and am certain I can tell a difference, especially with underwear and bedding - it's just different and makes your body more at ease  :ph34r:  no kidding!! Not suggesting this is anything to do with gluten, but on a chemical front - it makes you think.

Just to apologise ...

I thought that I was responding at the bottom of page 1 - so now I look completely off topic.

I think I'm losing the plot today :blink: .

To get your guts to play nicely you have to treat them nicely. High quality probiotics; digestive enzymes; L-glutamine, all will help them out, to repopulate your gut with the good guys, to digest your food, and to promote healing. (Providing you have killed off your SIBO :ph34r: )

Thanks. What constitutes a high quality probio? I am taking one but have no idea if its good or not?! Also what kind of food repopulates good bacteria? I once heard that green juices are good start? Though cant find any info on that! Will look into the digestive enzymes too.

I have no idea if I need any of this! All I know is that my 'movements' are still not right all the time, and my gi seems to make too much noise sometimes! I am eating a lot of veg though so who knows! I almost wish they could take another look inside to tell me if I am on track or not. Ugh. So frustrating.

Thanks though

I have not eaten out once yet. In 5 months. I'm far too scared. The UK are too behind the times with celiac for me to trust. I don't even trust celiac UK website much for their info... Very basic.

Interesting about the bed sheets. And laundry... Might give that a go... I am becoming hateful of chemicals these days and anything 'manufactured'!

Hmmmm you know, I am wondering if a baked potato might be safe for me to eat out? I could leave the skin maybe? Anyway, I'm rambling off on one now!!

:D

I think a lot of the probiotics are the same?  I was told at the Mayo Clinic to take one that contains lactobacilus acudophilos to keep yeast in check.  Other than that, I'd say switch brands from time to time to get a balance of various strains.  Some contain soy or dairy and I wouldn't recommend those. 

 

Probiotic foods include those foods that are fermented.  Kombucha tea, sour kraut, kimchee, keffir, Greek style yogurts that aren't full of sugar (if you tolerate dairy).

 

Green juices help replenish your digestive enzymes.  They might help if it seems like you are digesting things well.  If you are still having issues, I wouldn't overdo the fibrous veggies.  Be sure that they agree with you.  When healing some foods can irritate your system.

 

If you are having growly noises in your tummy it usually means your system is struggling with digesting..usually carbs.  A digestive enzyme supplement can really help.  I wouldn't take it with absolutely everything you eat, but if you are eating beans, peas, fatty foods, fibrous foods, they'd be a lot of help.

 

Healing can be a slow process.  We stop eating gluten and think we are magically going to feel great.  The truth is..it takes some time.  You will have "up" days and "down" days.  Keep a food/symptom log and if something doesn't agree with you, omit it, or limit it for a while. If you have a set-back, tell yourself these things happen, and try to do better. :unsure:

Thanks bubbasmom, that was really useful info. I will look for a probio containing that. I don't think mine does. I will start my food diary again. I stopped it a few weeks ago as I was kinda told not to bother (ie. I was being premature keeping one) but with hindsight it did help. In 4 months it helped me figure out some of my allergies and intolerances. Albeit now I'm stuck on a very restricted diet :( but! Onwards and upwards. Advice and help greatly appreciated :) you guys rock... Thanks

I was first DXed in July 2011.  I started keeping a food log when going gluten-free didn't stop a lot of my weird symptoms and just kept it up out of habit.  It's really helpful in figuring out some of the odd intolerances.  Just last week I made split pea soup and found I was very depressed the day after I ate it.  Skipped a couple of days and had it for lunch and got the same symptoms.  While not life threatening or anything, it was interesting to make the connection.  Without the log I don't think I would have made the connection?

 

I totally get how hard it is to live on a resticted diet.  I basically eat Paleo, except I can't have eggs now (because the winter feed has soy and it comes through to the egg) or any dairy.  I limit tomatoes and peppers because I know they can be irritating to my system.

 

Oh well...it won't be forever?  We'll get ourselves healed and straightened out and then we can start adding things back! :D

    • You're welcome ritamichelle. Yes, if you are biopsy confirmed then it will be much easier to get your daughter tested. 
    • I agree that In people that have celiac there usually is a trigger. It can be physical or emotional stress as the article states. I wonder though if the people they say 'don't have the genes' are folks that simply have rarer ones. There is research on more genes. I discovered it when I was writing a paper for a class. It was a very long time ago in 'computer age' and my bookmarks died along with the computer I was useing. But it is out there on peer reviewed sites like Lancet, NIH etc. Since celiac was rarely tested for even a couple decades ago there are many folks that may have celiac in their family but it was never known. That was the case in my family. I am confident about that.  I always wondered why my Mom seldom left the house, spent a lot of time in the bathroom, was tired all the time and was always holding her hands the way she did.  Then I became her.  We have so much to learn about celiac. Personally I dislike the term 'NCGS' because it makes folks think at times they don't need to be as strict and it isn't as serious. Too many are told that their biopsies are negative and they then get the NCGS label if they had positive bloods.  I consider celiac to be a spectrum disorder. Not all celiacs have gut impact or at least haven't developed it yet. I had the neuro impact and DH from shortly after I was impaled as a young child. It was many years before any severe GI issues arose.  
    •     http://www.takepart.com/article/2014/08/11/coffee-adulterated https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/how-was-your-morning-coffee-did-it-taste-like-mud-v6rfdmrrr92 http://grist.org/food/coffee-taste-like-dirt-thats-because-it-might-be/ " Using liquid chromatography, which identifies the individual chemical components of a mixture, the Brazilian scientists found wheat, soy bean, brown sugar, barley, corn, and rice commonly interspersed with the grounded coffee they tested. Large amounts of wood and dirt were also prevalent, an issue not only for purists who prefer to drink their coffee black, but for those with potential allergies to the unknown additives. As TIME reports, the scientists are identifying the rogue coffee with increasing accuracy:" http://www.bodyandsoul.com.au/health/health-news/is-there-wheat-hidden-in-your-coffee/news-story/a3d53a7c36b76156f08d89eab6a396b3   -----   I have also read other references to coffee upsetting those with celiac.   Personally I have a family history of officially diagnosed celiac even though I have never been diagnosed myself..then again Ive never been properly tested. My drs just keep saying the following symptoms are anxiety and wont refer me to a gastroenterologist for:   Loss of bowel control, pale coloured stools, severe bloating, passing undigested food, ataxia, vertigo, migraine headaches, feeling feverish, repeated ulcers on my tongue and in my mouth, feeling generally ill and sleep issues (mostly falling asleep when I dont want to but rarely insomnia).   Because they insist its anxiety as routine blood tests are normal they wont refer me to a gut dr. They did do a blood test for celiac once on my request but it came back negative. This does not phase me when it comes to my suspicians that gluten is an issue for me because:   1 I was on a gluten free diet at the time, hence why i was well enough to crawl to the gps office. 2 I have a family history of celiac 3 MY symptoms are alleviated by a gluten free, dairy free, oat free, corn free diet..and lately, coffee free it seems. Coffee has indeed become a problem for me recently. 4 I could not tolerate gluten based baby foods as an infant. I was admitted to hospital as a baby for being underweight because I was vomitting all my food up. They put me on gluten free formula and i was fine, stopped being sick and gained weight. I could have grown out of it but considering the symtpoms i get on a gluten based diet, i really doubt it.   -----   When it comes to the coffee, food manufacturers will do most anything to make profits if they think they can get away with it. We live in a world where money is most important and if they do get caught...they can always claim they have no idea how the barley got in there!    
    • If you have had a sleep study and been diagnosed, you have sleep apnea. It's definitely different than waking up to go to the bathroom. Are you using your cpap every night for The entire night. Naps too? SA can actually cause death so it's very Important for you to use it every time you sleep. Do you follow up with your doctor yearly? Sorry to sound like the SA police, but I know someone who died from it. He wasn't using his cpap anymore, thought it was uncomfortable.     What Is Sleep Apnea?   Sleep apnea (AP-ne-ah) is a common disorder in which you have one or more pauses in breathing or shallow breaths while you sleep. Breathing pauses can last from a few seconds to minutes. They may occur 30 times or more an hour. Typically, normal breathing then starts again, sometimes with a loud snort or choking sound. Sleep apnea usually is a chronic (ongoing) condition that disrupts your sleep. When your breathing pauses or becomes shallow, you’ll often move out of deep sleep and into light sleep.
